GPS Race Address:

Parking is tight at Oleson Cabin - we do allow limited parking at the trailhead but plan to park along the road. We do ask that you please carpool with your friends if possible to save space.
The event is held inside the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Therefore, all vehicles entering the park must either have an annual WI State Park sticker visible on the front windshield, or, you may purchase a discounted day pass for $5 while registering. Please note, if you're carpooling with your team, only one pass would be required. You may also purchase an annual pass before hand on the WI DNR Website.
We will race rain or shine. Bad weather is irrelevant if you're dressed properly. Please make sure you are prepared for the day. Throughout the series, you'll encounter cold temperatures, hot days, rain, wind and all the other variables Mother Nature loves to throw at you!
Trail shoes are highly recommended for these races. With the exception of Oleson Cabin and Blue Springs, the trails are not highly technical. Although, that's not to say won't find rocks, roots and other hazards on course. We also recommend some sort of handheld hydration system be it a full pack or single handheld bottle. We DO NOT have cups at our aid stations so please come prepared to fill your bottle.

You may choose from a short, mid or long distance course at the race. All distances are out and back and begin / end at the main trailhead where you park.
Courses are well marked with colored flags and arrows in more questionable sections. This course utilizes the Ice Age Trail and is single track out and back. The short loop is not very technical but does require your attention. The mid loop is semi technical and the long loop, towards the turnaround is very technical.
Remember to bring your own watch! We're a ground roots trail series - all races are self timed and reported by each runner. Just like the good ole days :).
